Atletico Madrid vs Chelsea Prediction
Atletico Madrid will need to jump out of their recent dip in form in the La Liga this season. They were hot in the league at the top with an unbeaten run. Their loss to Levante in the last clash broke that ten-game long unbeaten run in the league schedule.
Chelsea’s 1-1 draw at St Mary’s Stadium on Saturday made it seven games unbeaten for Chelsea under Tuchel, and the most vivid transformation has been in their defensive line.
They have reverted to a back three under the German manager and have conceded just two goals in seven games, focusing heavily on possession based football but as of yet struggling to find that attacking rhythm.
